Using case-studies from Oxford to Beijing and Chicago, Women and the City shows women constructing their lives in the urban environment, sometimes working against a system where needs are marginalized. Women are shown as community activists, homeless women, carers, patients, travellers, rock musicians and workers. The book emphasizes women as active agents, and the contributors include women working in urban management as well as academics from diverse backgrounds.
